LaBella demanded she return the phone, but Lohan balked -- and told cops he threw her down on the bed and scratched her. At one point, the troubled actress locked herself in a bathroom. She finally ran out of the 15th-floor suite -- where rooms top $500 a night -- and scurried down several flights of stairs, with [celebrity booker Claus] Hjelmbak in tow.
When the "Freaky Friday" star and her hunky pal began walking back up the stairs, they again encountered LaBella, sources said.
She claimed that he choked her from behind and threw her to the floor before Hjelmbak yanked him away, cops said. Lohan pulled the fire alarm for help as he fled, police said.
